Begin by securing your stencil over your water color paper.
Trace your stencil using water color pencils.
Here is the image as traced, before I added water.
Using a water brush begin going over colored areas. You can see haw the pigment moves!
Here is a finished picture of the stenciled image.
To finish my project I trimmed it to fit my card and matted on coordinating card stock and stamped my sentiment. I hope you are inspired to try some new techniques with your stencils.
